It’s been a fun year for the Steel City on the screen. Between “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” on Netflix, “Happiest Season” on Hulu, “I’m Your Woman” on Amazon Prime Video and “American Pickle” on HBO Max, Pittsburgh was well-represented as a prime shooting destination for filmmakers. There’s a reason those movies and three television shows now in various stages of production came to Pennsylvania to shoot: the state’s film incentive program. It’s essentially a rebate for studios that spend money in the commonwealth. Most states have similar programs aimed at enticing studios to shoot movies and TV shows there to reap the rewards of extra jobs and income.
